| We know Doug Lamborn was born and raised in Kansas, and doesn't know much about the big, scary world he lives in (Sesame Street could've helped with that), but to learn he's one of the most virulent anti-gay legislators in the House really disappoints me. From Think Progress:
So far this Congress, anti-LGBT Republicans have introduced at least ten major anti-gay bills, resolutions, and amendments in the U.S. House of Representatives. While 144 Members of Congress have sponsored or co-sponsored at least one of the proposals, seven signed on to five or more of the pro-discrimination measures, a ThinkProgress analysis reveals.
In the interests of our economy, House productivity, and dare I say bipartisanship, may I be the first to suggest that our first openly gay Congressman Jared Polis, after calling Lamborn's office and warning his staffers, come over there a give Doug a big humanistic hug.
The list includes.......
Rep. Doug Lamborn (R-CO), a third-term Republican who came under fire for racially insensitive comments that associating with President Obama was like "touching a tar-baby."
Realizing he hasn't caught the Cooties, Doug Lamborn might then lose some of the fear of his homosexual co-workers, friends, and neighbors, he might quit harassing them - and Big Bird - and finally, he might get his ass in gear and start working on some real policies that create jobs, take care of the soldiers and their families in his district, and quite possibly improve the lives of all of his constituents.
If he doesn't lose that fear of Teh Gay soon, I fear Doug Lamborn's pursuit of happiness will never be consummated. That would be a real drag...
